Mark our words: Art deco is back in a big way. The perennially chic decor style never truly left favor for the ultra-chic, but lately we're finding more and more ways to mix it with the other buzzy looks — hello, midcentury — of the moment. If you've got a flair for the dramatic (guilty as charged), now's the time to incorporate this decadent decor style into your own home. With an ever-increasing number of reproductions on the market, as well as modern online marketplaces to find original pieces at far-from-prohibitive prices, there's never been a better moment to bring some deco style home.
Here's how to get the look: Opt for plush textures (read: velvet) in rich jewel tones and rounded or scalloped silhouettes mixed with crisp repeating geometric patterns, preferably in brass. Pepper in some marble accents and your place will be ready for its close-up, in full 1930s (or 1980s, depending on your inspiration) glamour.
1. The Inside
While fashion-set darling The Inside is most known for its extensive collection of fabric options, it also offers a few furniture silhouettes that wouldn't be out of place in a glamorous 1920s deco apartment. Whether you opt for a more modern geometric print for your upholstery or choose classic velvet in a jewel-toned hue, these ornate styles are sure to fit the bill.
It's no surprise that Jonathan Adler, the king of all things elegant and dramatic, has a few standout art deco styles up his sleeve. His acrylic-and-brass Jacques collection lends a luxe element to any space, and plays surprisingly well with a mix of more modern or midcentury pieces.

It may surprise you to know that good ol' Anthro, known more for ultra-femme and boho-inspired furniture, has more than its fair share of art deco-inspired objects to lust after, from geometric bed frames to glam faceted mirrors befitting your most indulgent Old Hollywood fantasies.
7. West Elm
Sure, West Elm is pretty much synonymous with midcentury modern style at this point, but fastidious decor shoppers can find a few deco-inspired pieces hidden among the ranks, too — look for geometric details, rounded corners and rich brass tones.
Perigold's glamorous stock of everything from sideboards to bar carts to art prints checks all the boxes when it comes to the art deco accents you'd need to elevated your space.

Whether you uncover a true-vintage piece from the art deco heyday of the 20s or from its revival period in the 80s and 90s, or even find a modern reproduction (like this dreamy chaise), you can be sure you won't have the same furnishings as everyone else on your block.
10. World Market
Next time you need a foreign candy and wine fix, take a quick look at World Market's shockingly affordable selection of art deco accents. The retailer's channel-quilted headboards are just the thing to luxe up a guest room, while rolling bar and tea carts will provide the perfect backdrop for that vintage stemware collection.
